In the last half hour, I have received two messages about how it's so impportant to keep the Word of God in your heart and your head. It is the living Word.
In the Book I'll have what she's having by Bobbie Houston, she says "When the Word of God is entwined in and through your life, nothing can prevail against you because nothing can prevail against the living Word."
And then I turned on the TV, Ever Increasing Faith Ministries it was about the parable of the seed.
Tomorrow we leave for the mission trip, last year I hardly opened my bible. I was "too busy" and I will tell you that by the end of the trip, I was S-P-E-N-T. I figured it out AFTER we were home. That lesson spoke loudly in my life. Be in Word or you'll be of the world.
This past week was quite a week in a lot of ways. I was so thankful to have His Word coursing through my veins. Even though I cried, He spoke to me with His Word. On Thursday, the scripture that was loud and clear - Romans 12:21 Do not repay evil with evil, repay evil with good". Even though that's easy to say, sometimes its really not that easy to live. If it is for you, please send me a note and tell me how you do it because for me its a struggle.
I'm excited about this week, but always nervous things won't turn out or there will be an issue. God's Word says "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God" (Phil 4:6) I'm going to heed that. God has given me some great talents and gifts and I know that in Him nothing is impossible.
Today is a busy day of packing, washing the walls in my room that will be painted next week and more packing. I am going to draw on His strength this week, and I will read His Word to give me life!
John 5:24 "I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.
